if president karzai doesn't sign a security pact allowing them to stay until 2014. >> it's a very real possibility because if we don't have a bilateral security agreement which i've noted, that means we can't protect our forces that would be here at 2014. no international partners will come. afghanistan essentially will be alone. but we have no other option. >> american people look at this, all the blood, all the treasure. they hear things that hamid karzai says, adding new demands before he sign this security agreement, just a refusal to comply. why can't americans look at that and say it's just not worth it? >> i think that is a legitimate question, that we should ask that question, is it worth it or not worth it. it needs to be asked. especially in a representative government, a democracy, those questions must be asked. so it is now up to president karzai to make a decision. >> did the u.s. miscalculate in thinking he could be a partner? >> well, he has been a partner. >> but he surprised the u.s. saying he was going to sign this thing and he didn't. >> we were surprised. and then t
, thanked them for their service. he did not, repeat not meet with the afghan president hamid karzai who apparently didn't invite him in for coffee despite what the u.s. has done in afghanistan over these years, spending hundreds of billions of dollars, losing thousands of troops. i was pretty shocked that hagel, the defense secretary of the united states, was not apparently invited by president hamid karzai for a meeting. it's pointed though because the afghan leader has delayed signing a security agreement to extend the u.s. military troop presence in afghanistan for another ten years. hagel downplayed the significance of not meeting with karzai and says at afghan defense minister assured him the security agreement will be signed in "a timely manner." right now about 50,000 u.s. troops are still in afghanistan, supposed to stay most of them throughout this year but all of them are supposed to be out by the end of 2014. the coming year unless there's a security agreement in place. then there could be eight to 10,000 for 12,000 u.s. troops for another ten years at a cost of billions of d
, and the president of afghanistan, hamid karzai doesn't even have time to invite him in for a cup of coffee. what is going on. >> reporter: well, what the pentagon will tell you is that hagel never planned to meet with karzai during this trip, that it was simply a trip to thank the troops. he did, however, meet with some top afghan government officials to discuss what is going on and why karzai won't sign the security agreement that the u.s. needs that signature on in order to keep troops there after the end of 2014. let's be very clear. the u.s. isn't so anxious to stand right next for karzai right now. he is so unpredictable, that they really don't understand fully, they say, what he is up to. right now they're working with the second tier of afghan officials trying to get this resolved. wolf? >> we'll see what happens. at stake thousands of u.s. troops that could be stuck at the cost of bills ona year, and hamid karzai won't even talk. it's pretty shocking when you think about t we'll continue to follow the afghan story, because it is so important. barba barbara, thanks very much. >>> a ground
with crimes. these status of forces agreements are essential. and if karzai will not sign the agreement, then our hands are tied. the president's hands are tied. on the other hand, they have an election norah, in the spring. karzai will not be in office anymore. and some think, including the chairman of the senate armed services committee, carl levin, that we need to wait because even if karzai signed it we can't rely on him going forward because he'll only be in office a few more months. we maybe should try to tread water until a new president is elected in afghanistan in the spring. >> let's talk about as we're wrapping up the end of the year the latest polls are coming out calling this the worst congress ever saying it's the least productive. what do you say to that? is there a way to not blame the other guy? >> we all need to take responsibility. that's one of the things frankly folks at home get really irritated at is no matter what goes wrong we're so anxious to say it's their fault. in washington we're good at that, blaming the other guy, because this is a
in bangkok warning foreign travellers to stay out of the streets. >> afghanistan president karzai is accusing the u.s. of holding back fuel and other supplies. he said they are holding back supplies in an attempt to pressure for him to sign the agreement. >> from the "los angeles times" officials say speed may have been a factor in the crash that killed actor paul walker and his friend over the weekend. according to police the "fast and furious" star left a charity event. witnesses at the event said they heard a loud boom and saw smoke. walker was in the middle of gaming "fast and furious 7." walker leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter. he was 40 years old. >> really. isn't that bizarre? came from a charity event and he gets in one of the cars and the guy drives off with him -- >> he was the passenger in the car. >> passenger in the car and runs into a pole and blows up. >> yeah. the pictures of the scene afterward you can hardly make out it was a car. i never met him but he was a very kind, generous, humble guy. awful tragedy. >> "wall street journal," black friday deelts and early opening h

[ male announcer ] this is jim, a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine.
